A Small Victory: Pantry Organization
Don't laugh at me for posting before and after pictures of my pantry. It's not so much that I thought you'd necessarily care, but moreso that I needed a way to hold myself accountable to the task at hand.
I'm trying to tackle one project a week in the realm of organization. Last week was the pantry. Not merely for the sake of having a more organized pantry, but because I'd decided that if I could use my existing space/shelving better, then I could avoid the cost and space that would be needed to add a freestanding unit of some sort to hold all our preschool and craft materials. A shelf on the pantry would work great! Out of sight when not in use, and easy to organize. And best of all, free! It was a bigger challenge than I thought to free up an entire shelf, but at least now it's done, and we have a walk-in, rather than lean-in, pantry.
